The cabin homes of Thunderbird Lodge Retreat are located in Joshua Tree, California. We have the only vacation rentals surrounding the Covington Flats entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. We offer 5 rental home properties; each has its own beautiful acreage, is updated with modern amenities and is fully equipped for indoor and outdoor entertaining. You will have ultimate privacy and tranquility no matter which property you choose—breathtaking sunrises, sunsets and the multitude of stars will have a lasting impression. If you want to rent more than one property for family gatherings, they are only a few minutes apart by car. The area is also rich with wildlife, you may see: cottontail rabbits, jack rabbits, birds or prey, road runners, cactus wrens, lizards, desert tortoises, coyotes and more. If you are looking to have dinner out or to do some shopping, you are only 10-15 minutes from the village of Joshua Tree, 20 minutes from Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown and 45 minutes from Palm Springs. Here in the High Desert the weather is 10-15 degrees cooler than Palm Springs all year long.
